The Bank of Canada has urged businesses nationwide not to prohibit cash payments during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a news release published on Tuesday, the Bank of Canada said that limiting cash transactions would create problems for those who rely on cash as a method of payment.
"Refusing cash purchases outright will put an undue burden on those who depend on cash and have limited payment options," the statement reads.
The statement then goes on to say that Canada's polymer notes could be washed to prevent any potential spread of disease.
"If individuals want to take additional safety precautions, it is also possible to clean polymer bank notes with a bit of soap and water since they are resistant to moisture," the statement says.
